Teams wrap up scrimmage schedule well

ORANGE — The final tuneups are over as local schools wrapped up their scrimmage schedules as they will prepare next week for the “real season.”

In Thursday night’s final scrimmages across the area, the Orangefield Bobcats were impressive as they defeated Little Cypress-Mauriceville 21-0 in four full quarters of live action.

The Bridge City Cardinals looked good as they defeated the Woodville Eagles 14-13 while the Vidor Pirates edged out the West Orange-Stark Mustangs 28-21 in another Orange County encounter.

Orangefield’s Slot-T offense operated well throughout the night at Battlin’ Bear Stadium.

The Bobcats established the run game early with the likes of returning 1,000-yard running back Carl Wiley, along with Dustin Verrett and quarterbacks Carmichael Wiley and Matthew Kress.

Orangefield got on the board with 10:55 left in the second quarter when Kress connected with burly tight end Mason Sonnier with a 12-yard touchdown strike.

With 2:06 left in the first half, Carl Wiley found a ally and darted 33 yards down the left sideline.

He then capped the scoring for the night when he found a huge seam up the middle and raced 37 yards for a score with 6:52 left in the game.

The Bears had their moments as well as quarterbacks Caleb Harley and Jake Sonnier had a few nice connections with their receivers, especially to standout wideout Dalton Doyle.

The LC-M defense had a nice goal-line stand with 9:54 remaining, keeping the Bobcats out of the end zone on four straight plays when Orangefield had first-and-goal at the LC-M 2.

Bridge City’s defense rose up against Woodville, forcing the Eagles into three straight turnovers right out of the gate.

Cardinal quarterback Chase Shugart led the Cardinals on a three-play, 27-yard drive after a Woodville turnover as Shugart capped it with a 12-yard quarterback dart up the middle.

The Cardinals added a late touchdown right before the half when Colt Poole bowled his way into the end zone from a yard out.

Woodville added a score in the second half when a Eagle defender scooped up a Cardinal fumble and returned it over 60 yards for a touchdown.

Over at Vidor, the Pirates streaked to a 28-7 lead in the fourth quarter.

The Pirates scored on a 60-yard interception return and also scored on a fumble return. Vidor also scored on two running plays, one a 45-yarder.

The Mustangs scored their touchdowns on long tosses, one a 40-yarder and the other a 70-yarder late in the fourth period.

It all starts for real Aug. 30.

LC-M, which will be seeking its first playoff appearance since 1997, will open their 2013 campaign at home Aug. 30 against West Orange-Stark. The Bears’ first District 20-4A game will be Sept. 27 at home against Livingston. WO-S will open District 21-3A play Sept. 27 at Hamshire-Fannett.

Vidor will open up its season Aug. 30 on the road at Santa Fe. They will begin District 20-4A play Sept. 27 on the road at Nederland.

Bridge City will kickoff its campaign Aug. 30 at home against Class 2A No.1 state-ranked Newton and will begin District 21-3A play Sept. 27 at home against Buna.

Orangefield will open its season Aug. 30 at home against East Chambers and will start District 21-3A play Sept. 27 at Silsbee.
